Chinese autonomous vehicle start-up Neolix has said it is planning on introducing 10,000 of its self-driving microvans across the capital and other cities.
Neolix has reportedly already begun deploying its Level 4 autonomous microvans in Beijing and other Chinese cities.
The Driven reports China’s “last-mile” market already boasts some 40 million vehicles offering home delivery services, primarily utilising two- and three-wheel electric motorbikes.
Neolix’s founder and chief executive Yu Enyuan said, ““Operating 10,000 units will be an industry milestone and it is crucial (for us) to achieve it.”
According to The Driven Neolix’s microvans have so far passed 500,000 kilometres of test runs and are currently deployed in gated theme parks around Beijing and 10 other Chinese cities where they are used as mobile convenience stores.
